I Still Miss Barnaby's - And Farrell's - And Captain's Steak Joynt

I Still Miss Barnaby's - And Farrell's - And Captain's Steak Joynt

By Jeff Wagner. CREATED May 9, 2014

The other night I was in a new restaurant that had just opened a few miles from where I live.  It was, frankly, quite good and certainly the type of place I could see myself becoming a regular at.

At the same time, two other restaurants in my area have recently closed.  I wasn't a big fan of either one though, so I really won't miss them (although I certainly hope the owners and the employees find something else to do).

In this vein, the local newspaper has an article today about some new restaurants that have just opened - and some that are closing.

I'm always looking to find a great new restaurant (like I think I did this week).  Still, there are a lot of restaurants that I've frequented over the years (both fine dining and otherwise) that have closed and that I still miss.  Like Barnaby's ... and Farrell's ... and Captain's Steak Joynt.

Obviously, for better or worse,  my tastes have gotten a bit more refined (and expensive) over the years.

During the 2:30 segment of Friday's radio show, we'll take a walk down memory lane and discuss restaurants that are gone - but not forgotten.

Please feel free to share your thoughts in the Comments section - and be sure to check back later to hear a replay of the segment.
